The Game

Something very bizarre has happened in the fairy village. What has taken place that could have burned the occupants from chummy chappies into fluffy fiends?

They've only gone and kidnapped the mother of our angelic fairy heroes, Tam and Rit.

She now lies captured in the top of the Mahoots tower, waiting to be rescued.

There's only one thing for it, Tam and Rit must put on the rainbow shoes and dust off their magic rods!

Bump all the friendly local creatures to break the spell and make your way through the village to free your mother!

This version has been recoded by Rafar Miazga to add back the colour that was missing from the original.


Tam and Rit live in a fairy village. Having led a happy life full of sticky cakes and endless parties, they find that something awful has happened overnight to their fellow inhabitants. They've turned nasty and captured their Mom and locked her in the top of the Mahoots Tower. Luckily for Tam and Rit, they've inherited the Rods of Sheesanomo from a village elder and some rainbow shoes from their Pop. Armed with these, they can tackle the tower by wopping cuddly beings on the head with their rods and climbing ladders built with the help of the rainbow shoes. It's not easily though, when your former friends have some rather mean surprises in store for you!

The game consists of over 40 levels of cuddly-bashing action. You must work through each screen, wopping the nasties and collecting the flowers. Wop them often enough and you'll pick up a useful weapon, or just tickle them with the rod and see what happens.

To get around the screen, you must build ladders either up or down to connect to platforms. As soon as you build a second one, your first ladder will disappear. If you don't clear the screen of your opponents in time, the game will change to "meany" mode where life will become far more difficult. Collecting all the flowers switches you into the "extra game". Here you can collect an extra life by picking up letters to form the word E X T R A.

You can play with one or two players but if you wish to start a two-player game, you must do so from the main menu. A second player cannot join in where the journey has already begun!

Game Controls

Normal joystick movements apply.
When holding an enemy with your magic rod, press the fire button to wop him on the ground.
Use the fire button in conjunction with moving up to create a ladder.
